Visionary Event Planning

Hundreds of event planning companies have found a storefront on the Crystal Coast to market their me-too ideas to dream-making brides and socialites. Do-it-yourself planners take on the high expectations of clients, only hoping to fulfill the vision created within the hearts and minds of even the most grandiose of guests. This is where Emerald Eyes differentiates itself. We polish and perfect the vision of our clients and add creative clarity to every fine detail to make your event personal, inspiring and stress free. Emerald Eyes helps clients discover the perfect wedding gown, orchestrate extravagant tastings, create stunning flower arrangements, select a musical ensemble that can’t stop your foot from tapping, and supports clients in selecting and hosting the most notable and prestigious guests and speakers. Whatever the event requires and client desires, Emerald Eyes planners create an exquisite touch of class for every event.

The company consists of only one employee who is the sole owner, president, and event planner. The owner, Christa Goin, has a strong background in planning, coordinating and executing events, and in relationship development that will help grow the business and build a solid foundation of credible and satisfied clients. Goin wanted to create an opportunity for clients to entrust her with as much of the event execution responsibility as necessary to deliver their ideal business, social or family event. With her meticulous attention to detail, creative ideas, ability to secure third party resources at the most conservative costs, innovative methodology, and positive energy, she has already began creating necessary connections in the Charlotte area for the company and your event to be a success.


Emerald Eyes creates environments for only the ritziest events in town: Fortune 500 corporate gala events and holiday parties, socialite and star-studded weddings, bar mitzvahs, debutante balls, international award evenings and charity events, and other high-end social engagements – all make up the portfolio of satisfied clients. Under Christa Goin’s leadership and management, and as Emerald Eyes’ most experienced planner, our team provides an array of talents and the unique ability to innovate and create, execute on the industry’s best practices, and assure the highest attention to detail and step-by-step partnership with the client.
Setting and meeting budget parameters and guidelines are standard expectations in event planning. To maintain healthy, consistent and sustainable revenue numbers, Emerald Eyes quotes events with 25-30 percent margins, allowing the company to be profitable and cover overhead expenses. The remainder of the budget is allocated directly to the costs of event execution.
